Joe Joyce ready to 'finish Daniel Dubois and move on' using 'aggressive' style

Joe Joyce targets stoppage ahead of November showdown with Daniel Dubois and questions his opponent's lack of real tests during his professional career

British heavyweight Joe Joyce believes that he can stop Daniel Dubois in their November clash, and is already targeting future fights and a world title shot despite pointing to experience and his previous opponents as key factors in the fight.

"The Juggernaut" dispatched of Michael Wallisch in his tune-up fight ahead of the domestic bust-up back in July, and believes that this huge battle will definitely end in the same manner, prediciting a huge knockout.

 Speaking on the Gary Newbon Sports Show with Jewson, Joyce highlighted the aggression in his style that he plans to bring to the ring against his 23-year-old rival.

He said: "There's no other fight out there like right now. It's a great fight in my career. Once I beat Dubois it will set me up for some really nice fights. All that stands between me and where I want to be is Dubois so it's easy. I need to finish him and move on.

"He's younger and fresher but he's not been through the fire and had some real tests. He's dangerous, a strong set of boxing skills and one hell of a right hand. If he hits me cleanly I'm going to feel it so I've got to be prepared and careful in the fight and take him into deep waters.

"I like to come forward and throw loads of punches and see how they deal with it. I can change if I need to depending on the fighter and how the fight pans out.I believe it won't go 12 rounds and someone is going to end on the floor. Let's try and knock him out because you don't get paid for overtime."

His rival 'Dynamite' Dubois who is favourite among several people in the industry, believes that his youth and exuberance will enable him to have extra strength, speed and power over Joyce so woud welcome the fight going twelve rounds if neccesary.

He said: "I see it as one of the top fights of the decade. I think it (the age difference) will be a massive difference. You can't buy youth and that is something I have on my side. With youth comes the power and strength and the capability to dig deeper than Joe and that's all I need to do.

"I feel like I'm improving and haven't showed the best of me yet. I really want to just go in there and perform and show everything I've got and show myself what I can do. He's a tough competitor. He's rough, he's rugged and doesn't give you a moment to breath of think. I'm prepared to go the full 12 rounds but if it ends before that then I won't be surprised.

"That's (world title) definitely the course I want to be heading in. I want to reach that goal of winning a world title and doing that before I'm gone."
